Nighttime Sea Turtle Walks

Sea turtle walk on the beach

SEA TURTLE WALKS 2021

Sea turtle nesting season is almost here!  Florida Oceanographic Society holds a special permit from the state of Florida to offer guided sea turtle nesting watches during June and July. 

Registration begins May 1, 2021.

Sea turtle nesting season officially begins on March 1st.  Please keep our beaches dark, flat, and clean to help our nesting momma sea turtles!

HOW TO KEEP BEACHES DARK, FLAT, AND CLEAN

Reminder: This program is conducted under a state permit. Conducting guided sea turtle walks on your own or disturbing sea turtles is against the law. Please keep all lights off while on the beach during sea turtle nesting season, including flashlights, cell phones and cameras. Don't forget to keep a respectful distance from nesting females or hatchlings.
